Open Call:
Artists Technical Support Registration,
Leitrim Sculpture Centre

Leitrim Sculpture Centre are seeking applications from artists wishing to register as Artists’ Technical Support advisors and/or mentors at its Centre in Manorhamilton Co. Leitrim.

Technical support is typically provided on a one to one basis to individual artists undertaking a residency placement at the Centre, including those artists who hire the Centre’s facilities and supports to develop new work. Artists who are successful in registering technical support services to the Centre will have demonstrated their experience and ability to support other artists across a range of material and  technical processes.

Registered artists may be approached in the future to provide technical support services at the centre and this will be determined by the creative requirements of artists using the Centre on an ongoing basis.

In addition artists may also register to deliver workshop courses at either beginners/intermediary or masterclass/advanced levels. These will also be put forward for selection to the Workshop Programmes developed by the Centre in the future.

DEADLINE for submission:   20th October 2021
NOTIFICATION of successful registration:     15th  November 2021

The LSC Workshop Programme advances skills and knowledge across all the main traditional and contemporary art making disciplines. By providing opportunities for experimentation across key material processes the programme demystifies 'technique' in supporting artists developing new work whilst attracting new communities to the Centre. An integrated structure ensures that workshops are available from a basic level upwards and the movement between courses is both possible and encouraged.

Workshops cater for basic and up to intermediary levels of experience and may attract members of the public as well as artists wishing to take part.

Masterclasses bring professional artists together to examine and explore advanced technique around a specific medium or process through collaboration, sharing of knowledge and by working across and combining different materials and processes

Symposia Symposia often take place in the Gallery in combination with technical areas. They present opportunities for engagement in the creative development of new work for display and/or public exchange or for discussing its application in different social contexts.

Professional Development Training facilitates practical ways artists can advance their careers. These often involve third party organisations bringing in expertise such as the VAI, Creative Frame and/or involve creative-industries initiatives in collaboration with Local Development Companies and County Councils for example: Harnessing Creativity and Leitrim Livecraft. Benefits accrued include Professional Development; Provision of employment; Sharing of skills and knowledge; Business mentoring and Marketing support.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the risk of Covid-19 all LSC workshops are under review and postponed until further notice.
